The Evil Lamppost

After the "Evil Door Keeper" painting which I posted some week ago I noticed a creepy lamp post in a very old and hidden street of the old district in my town. This one has the look of a dragon who appears to keep a fairy in captivity.
This shot has been taken using the same broken cam I wrote of few paintings ago.
Lots of evil beings in that district!
By the way this is an 0.2 and 0.3 ink pen sketching and maybe its fate is to end up in watercolor pencils. Not sure right now though.

Jewels Completed

I have completed two jewels made from two watercolor paintings of mine. Lot of fun.

New Cover For Old Notebook

Recently I've been given a notebook to take notes for a new class I'm starting in a few days. The notebook however is very old, way older than me judging from the outfit of the workers in the covering picture (strange thing because in my time the paper wasn't even invented), and much too ugly. So I painted two pictures related to the topic of the lessons and made up a new cover.
Interesting idea a watercolor painting cover for books and notebooks... and funny too.

Second Of Two

This one ends my series of two watercolor paintings. It is based on a picture I shot a while ago in La Pelosa in Stintino.
The next post I'm going to show the project completed.

Broken Cam

Last time I went biking towards the mountains I had some kind of problem to the front wheel because I got many flat tires. During one of those stops to repair it I left my photo cam outside its case and when I got home I found it was damaged because it had taken a bad hit with something inside my backpack. So it happened recently that I wanted to take a picture of this bumble bee using the same cam:

but when I downloaded the picture I found this one:

So I found out that there is something wrong with my cam because I don't recall I ever shot a fairy in my garden while drinking a droplet of dew.
Anyway I'm not going to repair it.

A New Graphite Exercise

The struggle, this time, was not coloring too much. Just graphite HB and 6B.

A New Ink Exercise 3

This afternoon I thought to try another different approach but was tired to work on the same subject and took another one. This time the drawing is an HB graphite and 0.3 black ink pen. These days I'm interested very much in working on "comics-like" artworks, body proportions and ink.
Drawing inspired by a picture I found in my google+ page.

A New Ink Exercise 2

Tonight I decided to try a different approach to the same ink exercise almost all of it painted with a large black ink marker in the style of maybe Dylan Dog comics.
